The words for the day-Share the Joy Thursday


Words for the day

I Love You






I have been able to get outside one day this week and do some clean up on the deck and patio.
What JOY to be out making our little nest cozy again for our evenings in our swing.

It took a lot of scrubbing to get rid of the trail made by the birds we so enjoyed this winter.
Such JOY watching them gather at our feeders.
A time and a place for everything.

The swing has two hearts cutout on the back and I tied a Valentine ribbon on them.

Kind of bare but it will soon be time to plant some annuals.
What JOY we take in our little piece of heaven on earth. 
  


I am such a romantic.

Below is the first Valentine hubby got me after we were married in April 1960.

Every Valentine's day I get it out and display it in a place where we can see it and remember our many years together.


It is a book of poetry and I love it.
I love him.

That swing looks cozy. I like the lacy curtains hanging on the side. How wonderful that you still have the card after all these years. Happy day to you! Tammy
